Quantum Information Processing with Trapped Ion Qudits

Project description

The world's first qudit quantum processor takes shape

As if qubits were not confusing enough, we now have qudits to reckon with. Qudits replace the two-level qubit – the unit that can be a one, a zero or both at the same time – with a multi-level computational unit (d>2). It enables a larger state space to store and process information and the ability to perform multiple operations simultaneously with the same unit. The EU-funded QIPID project will develop the world’s first universal qudit quantum processor using trapped calcium ions and four of their electronic levels (d=4). Application to quantum simulation will highlight the pioneering platform’s potential.
